The Covenant of Mayors in Albertslund (DK)

Albertslund: living in a climate laboratory, November 2012

Home to 30,000 inhabitants, Albertslund is a cutting-edge Danish eco-city, 17km away from Copenhagen. Since April 2012, Albertslund is connected to Copenhagen with the "C99 cycle super highway", a fast biking alternative for commuters to get to the capital's city centre. Albertslund was recently awarded the "Nordic Energy Municipality 2011" for the "Albertslund Concept", a cost-effective model of prefabricated solutions for home renovation applicable to different types of buildings. The city is now working on a new LED street lamp, which will replace the existing outdoor lighting system. These new lamps will be intelligent points in the smart grid. Albertslund is a Covenant of Mayors case study for energy-efficient solutions in European cities.
